Change my path career [#permalink]

Good Afternoon mates. I need some help. I am a Law student from Spain, and I am thinking of changing my future career into Finance or Business. Let me explain it:
I am in my third year of Law Degree. 3 of 4 years almost completed.
My question is: Could I work or being hired in Finance or Business Sector if I study Master of Science in Finance, without any prior undergraduate studies in Business/Economics or Finance Bachelor, just having studied my Bachelor in Law?
Or is more prudent to work as a Lawyer some years, in order to adquire some experience and, if i still have the idea to change my career into Business, study an MBA?
As I said, My undergraduate bachelor is Law, so my main question is: Could i be hired into finance if I study Msc in Finance, without any prior Business undergraduate studies and be hired?

Thanks!
Álvaro.

Yes.

Often corporate or Big Four consultancies will recruit those that have studied law for a range of roles including Management and Finance. Its a useful degree to get given the ability to gather the most relevant information and consicesly make an argument for one side when theres no definitive answer.

A postgraduate (pre-experience) masters in management or finance may help you feel at ease in the transition and help convince employers of your motivation to move into that sphere.

But definitely, you can make the move even with just the law degree.

If you dont want to do law then I would advise not doing it just to get experience for doing an MBA - those years will drag, and it will make it more difficult to career transfer than if you have interesting pre-mba experience.

If you want to make the switch, go ahead and make it sooner than later. Working in law won't improve your chances down the line and will be a sacrifice of those years once you switch
